Despite the advancement of technology and the development of alternative testing methods, animal testing is still an issue in 2021. According to Cruelty-Free International, over 115 million animals are used for animal testing worldwide each year. While many brands, like Araceli Beauty, remain cruelty-free, other beauty brands continue to test on animals – oye!
Beauty brands that continue to test on animals in 2021 actively CHOOSE to test on animals. These brands choose to deliberately bypass alternative testing and make a choice to be cruel.
Araceli Beauty says "no" to animal testing and maintains a "cruelty-free" status. From eyeshadow palettes to liners and lashes, Araceli Beauty products are formulated with the well-being of animals in mind
Switching to cruelty-free products is one of the best ways to say no to animal testing. Here are our Top 5 Reasons to Choose Cruelty-Free Beauty Products:
- ANIMAL TESTING IS EXTREMELY CRUEL & INEFFECTIVE
- THERE ARE MANY ALTERNATIVES TO ANIMAL TESTING
- THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF "SAFE" COSMETIC INGREDIENTS
- CRUELTY-FREE PRODUCTS ARE HEALTHIER
- MANY CRUELTY-FREE BRANDS ARE BUDGET-FRIENDLY
The animals used in experiments are confined to small cages and inhumane conditions and subjected to tests that are beyond cruel. To make matters worse, the tests these innocent animals endure are ineffective. Animals do not get many of the diseases humans do, such as heart disease, many types of cancers, HIV or Alzheimer's disease. An analysis of over 100 mouse cell types found that only 50% of the DNA responsible for regulating genes in mice could be matched with human DNA. We vote for more accurate tests and alternatives to animal testing!
Since animal experiments are expensive, cruel, and inapplicable to humans, scientists have developed testing methods to replace laboratory animals. Animal testing alternatives include sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues (in vitro methods), advanced computer-modeling techniques, and human volunteers' studies. Science favors these alternatives over animal testing because they're more relative to human health; however, animal testing has the advantage of being low-cost. Animals are only used because they're more "affordable", which is extremely unethical in our opinion!
To formulate their products, beauty companies can choose from a list of thousands of ingredients that are already proven to be safe – no animal testing required 😊
Chemicals commonly used in animal-tested products are harmful to not only those to apply them to their skin but to the planet. Our skin absorbs everything we apply to it and using products full of parabens, fragrances, and harmful chemicals isn't a healthy habit. Instead, opt for more natural ingredients that are better for your body and the planet.
Just because you are on a budget doesn't mean you still can't opt for cruelty-free beauty products! Araceli Beauty's products are highly pigmented, long-lasting, on-trend, cruelty-free, and affordable. Make the switch to cruelty-free beauty products that are better for you and better for the animals!
